This was the best reply to this topic in my newsboat. Great episode, really well done.

Phoronix report: Jan, 2020

“While the commit count is lower for the year, on a line count it’s about average with seeing 3,386,347 lines of new code added and 1,696,620 lines removed.”

The Linux Kernel Enters 2020 At 27.8 Million Lines In Git But With Less Developers For 2019 - Phoronix

3,386,347 lines added - 1,696,620 lines removed = 1,689,727 lines added

1,689,727 lines added / 4,189 authors = avg. 403 lines added per author

On average only 403 lines were added per author during 2019 as an example of the manageability of these additions when distributed across authors.


@mattdln did an awesome job jumping into the actual numbers!
